Carvey is a tabletop device that lets users turn ideas into real objects out of different materials like wood, metal and plastic

Though 3D printing technology has undoubtedly changed the maker’s world, most 3D printing machines are limited to specific types of materials. Chicago, Illinois-based company Inventables hopes to bring the technology to another step through its latest creation, a 3D carving machine that allows makers to create objects out of various materials like wood, metal, plastic and others.

The tabletop 3D carving machine, called Carvey, lets users turn their ideas into something tangible.

Carvey comes with the company’s free design software, Easel, which allows users to design in 2D and instantly view their creations in 3D. Easel runs on a web browser and lets users create their own designs, import a design or select from the Easel projects library. The 3D carving machine can also be used CAD, CAM and machine control software.
